Early Flat Ovolo Molding Plane b Hathersich, Manchester.
This plane was made by George Hathersich in Manchester, England between 1797-1843 according to Goodman. The plane exhibits design elements of early British planes including the deep cove on the step and heavy, flat chamfers. It has an especially steep middle pitch blade for hardwoods. The plane has been used quite a bit as evidenced by the short blade, but there is little wear and no damage. It's clearly been appreciated and well cared-for. While the blade is short there is some good useful life left in it. It's a common profile and a replacement blade will be easy to come up with without too much bother should you use up the original. An early, quite useful molder.

Early Flat Ovolo Molding Plane by Ts. Fairbairn.
This is a 3/5in wide flat ovolo molder with a clear maker's stamp at the toe "Ts.

The high wear point at the tip of the ovolo is boxed. It has a nice clean blade. it's a high quality, early molder by an unknown maker.

This is a pattern maker's cranked gouge made by Buck. It has its original apple handle and measures 12.5in overall. The back has no pitting at all.

It'll be a top quality user with just a bit of labor.
